Squirrel Class

Autumn 1


This term in year 1 our topic has been ‘enchanted woodland’.

In English, we have been reading and writing about our favourite animals. We made riddles and asked our friends to guess which animals we were describing.

We have also the retold traditional tales ‘Red Riding Hood’ and ‘Goldilocks’. We then got to act out parts of the Red Riding Hood story in our fun drama workshop.

In Geography we have been making maps. First we made a map of the Nursery playground. Then, we created a Red Riding Hood map to help the woodcutter find his way to Gran’s house!

In science, we learned about the difference between evergreen and deciduous trees. We took a trip to our playground and learnt that our enormous tree is called ‘Turkey Oak Tree’.

In DT we went on a hunt and found lots of leaves, flowers, twigs and seeds. We used all of this to make our very own woodland crowns!

As the rugby world cup has been on we have had the chance to learn the English national anthem in music!
